Lalu’s Budget, not bad. Not bad at all. Chak De Railways ?
My son summed it up, “Does he mean railway stations will look like Airports?” I was most amused at the unabashed self-praise...Well deserved, earned ??
I am generally a believer in privatisation, because anything that belongs to everybody (State or Government Property, Sarvajanik property) is NOBODY’s property. There was a time one had to wait for a minimum of three months to get a telephone connection, if one paid Rs 10,000/- (1988). Otherwise there was a longer wait. Once the government allowed the profit makers to provide telecom services...all I can think is ‘what an idea sar jee!’
Remember krishi darshan days on Indian Television?
So although Lalu Yadav is doing a great job, some amount of privatisation will do an even better job. See what it did for Air Travel?
